I would like to get an SCT but cant afford it right now got to wait a few months. Got tomany bills right now to get out of the way. I didnt think I would be that impressed by the Edge but it will out run my buddies 04 until i hit the speed limiter( he just got his SCT, thats how I got the Edge)and his has a mild street tune in it. I know that with a strong tune that it will not compare but it will keep me happy for a little while.LOL

Just pace yourself and take it easy on the transmission. I'm sure you will be fine, just don't get too carried away. Chris

If you don't have money for an SCT how do you expect to buy a tranny?:poke:

Agreed,if you dont have money for an SCT,then you dont have money to fix your truck,which you are going break something from your post. The speed limiter is probably a good thing,EGTS get crazy high at high speeds,and you aint got $$ to fix the truck when it pops a head gasket,and you slip the trans.

echo....echo.....echo......an Edge will nuke your tranny....be careful on how many of those hard pulls you're doing. Put that Edge on ebay and start saving for the SCT.

just remember, you may be happy with it NOW, but there's a reason it was free :)

i'd listen to these guys... you get what you pay for, and a free edge will end up costing you THOUSANDS in the long run when you have to buy head studs and new transmission

I'm not saying one product is better than another, but you hear of people with SCT puking and having problems just like people with other brands. If you add big HP to them, be it from any brand, you know you are accepting the facts that it CAN happen. I'm sure SCT is a great product, but why discourage someone from buying another brand if they can't afford the SCT, but get a really good deal on something else???

why ? because i'm doing them a favor . the edge makes power by increasing the timing, which spikes the cylinder pressures and is a major reason for puking.. and because the sct w/a set of gauges is USUALLY cheaper than a full edge juice/attitude combo so going the sct route is win/win situation and his tranny will thank him for it too..

Is it the platinum? We have an 06 thats had the Platinum for 45k miles and its still purring along and the shifts are all still quick and firm with no flare. We also service the tranny every 20k miles. Maybe that makes a difference? I like being able to use all the Edge's gauge features.

this is the older version not platinum. I HAVE A 6SPD NOT TORQSHIFT. already talk to elite and they said it would be fine. My buddy went to SCT for tranny reasons, but any way if its free power then i will take it. I also have warranty on my truck so if i break it all i pay is the deductible.

I did get it to puke but i have been flogging on it really hard. It was just a little bit just a sprinkle on the degas bottle.

If you have the 6 Speed just watch the clutch. Many 6 Speed owners say that the factory clutch can't handle much more than stock. Chris

Well the clutch has been replaced but not sure with what. Have had no slippage as of yet.

When I put the SCT in my truck (6-speed),..I made it about 10 miles,..and the clutch was smoked,...the truck only had 12k miles on it,..and had NEVER towed.

Stock sucks.....I've had a SouthBend DD for awhile now,....no issues
